Everyday Essentials with Buxom Beauty

Buxom EssentialsAfter switching gears to fall, my everyday beauty routine needed a serious pick-me-up. Lucky me I recently had the chance to test out some products from Buxom and found myself inspired all over again to put makeup on each morning. I (literally) got my glow back. My first impression was how smooth everything went on from the foundation to the lip creams—hands down the best lip shine I’ve used! Putting each product on felt luxurious in its own way. Here’s a peek at my everyday favorites that I’ve been relying on plus (drum roll) I’ll be giving away all eight products to 2 lucky winners! Enter below.

Gift Guide: For the Hostess

I had one of those, “where has the time gone!” moments the other day when I realized that Thanksgiving was now less than two weeks away. First I got giddy just thinking about all the good food on the horizon and spending time with family and friends, and then I realized how slightly unprepared I was. True, I have a get-out-of-Thanksgiving-chore-free card thanks to having a newborn at home but I still plan on making my favorite sweet potato dish. And since finding something special to thank the host is always appreciated and fun to shop for I rounded up a few things I currently have in my shopping cart.

Clockwise from top left: Byredo candle, Fork Cheese Market Set, Champagne Bottle tray, Feasting with Bompass & Parr book, Black Madeleine candles, Noe Modular bottle holder, Jonathan Adler coasters, Kelly Wearstler wine stopper (also available here), Dinner Diaries book, Sunday Suppers book.
